I had the good fortune to stop by the Glenora Distillery in mid October. I had a bowl of chowder in the dining room where two Celtic musicians were performing. The chowder was quite wonderful and the atmosphere is amazing but, the autumn colours are absolutely spectacular. I also picked up a bottle of single malt whiskey as I headed...

We stayed in the Inn for two nights last July. The grounds are very nice and the surrounding landscape is beautiful. The room was spacious and clean. We ate at the pub one night (same menu as the restaurant), the pub is cosier and adds the benefit of local live music. The hotel is close to beaches and local restaurants...

We stayed here overnight for the gourmet package with evening dinner and breakfast. When you arrive the place is beautiful, well maintained gardens etc. Arrived too late in the afternoon to do the tour so we decided to head straight to our room. We had been given a brand new lodge. Yes we were actually the first to stay in...

Happy to hear your overall experience with us was enjoyed. The inn rooms are attractive because of the close location to the pub/restaurant, however the chalets and lodge are enjoyed for their seclusion and privacy, so depending on what you're looking for we can offer a variety of experiences. Thank you so much for your visit and for taking the...

It's a lovely spot. Staff in shop were not friendly nor helpful. We were looking for just some tastings and we were directed to the pub. Path and area were were picturesque. Pub/restaurant were not busy (3 other customers), we were looking over the menu while standing at the bar for some time. No one bothered to offer any assistance...

I am so sorry to hear your visit to Glenora was not enjoyed. Typically our staff displays Cape Breton hospitality at it's best. I'm not sure what happened at the time of your visit, however I sincerely apologize. I wish I would have had the opportunity to discuss this issue with you at the time, as I would have loved...

A lovely look place with an Inn, Pub and Distillery. One of the rare places in the world that is able to call its single malt whisky "Scotch". There is a little stream of pristine water which runs through the property and its water is used in the production of the whisky. There are old apple trees on the property...

Came to the area to golf at the Cabot resort, but could not get a room at Cabot, so we booked two rooms at the Glenora Inn & Distillery. It was a short drive to the courses, so very convenient. They actually make whisky here and give tours to anyone who wants to see how it's done - recommended. I'm...

We were in town to play golf at nearby Cabot Links/Cabot Cliffs. They were all booked at the resort so we stayed in a nice cottage here at Glenora Inn which was only a short drive from the course. Turned out to suit our needs just great!

I had wanted to stay here for some time having been before just for the tour. The setting, especially in fall with the colourful trees is stunning. We took a walk up the hill to see the chalets taking the full loop cars would take. It was a 45 minute stroll, perfect before getting ready for dinner. We usually stay...

Reservations for dinner before a Celtic festival evening. The venue is out a ways from the built up areas of Mabu so plan accordingly. The restaurant and bar are attached to the distillery. Many food items have a whiskey overtone to their sauces.. All very good. Nice dining room, windows overlooking a courtyard only ok. Dinner servings ample. 1 appetizer...

We stayed in a cabin above the distillery. The cabin was nicely finished inside with a sleeping loft, bedroom, living room with wood stove and kindling, kitchen and bathroom.

“We stayed upstairs and it was very quiet. From the construction, I would think ground floor rooms would be noisier.”
